How to Draw Fantasy Art in General

Generally, fantasy art is an art work by imagination of great writers, ancient myths, movie makers and artists. But you can also create these fantasy creatures just by using your wide imagination and putting your self in to the world of fantasy. Now, in this article, I will help you to draw these imaginative creatures that form in your mind and putting this in paper sketching in its enchanted form.

Have you ever wondered why dogs bark with an unusual sound that gives a very uneasy feeling during the night? Or taught of creepy creatures hiding in the dark? We often heard about them from ghost stories and feared their appearance in televisions. They might be real and frighten you as well or just fantasy, created by people with wide imaginations. Most fantasy creatures are feared for their violence known as beasts, but there are also some that are said to be good and helpful. Thumbelina, Thinker Bell, Peter Pan and fairy god mother sure don’t scare us.

Fantasy is a dimension created by or came from a wide imagination that separates real from enchanted. It is generated from our mind to form an imaginative picture and even form a beautiful fantasy creature. Generally, it is an art work by imagination of great writers, ancient myths, movie makers and artists. But don’t worry for there is no exception in having a fantasy art, for we can also form these fantasy creatures just by using our wide imagination and putting our self in to the world of fantasy. Now, in this section, I will help you to draw these imaginative creatures that form in your mind and putting this in paper sketching in its enchanted form. Image

Get started with preferred fantasy art in your mind. Brilliant ideas are the sources of extraordinary outputs, unbelievable things and sometimes things that blow other people’s mind. Try to think of anything that is unrealistic or unusual; beast with six feet or a talking car. One way of doing so is by allowing un-living objects or animals to possess any human attributes. Try to distort animals or object’s appearance or combining their parts to form your own mystery character. Now, that you have these imaginative forms of those creatures in your mind like changing the parts of existing animals and form a new variation of new creature, sketch it in a way of free style with a general form with an accurate proportion. Imagine the shapes of the body of the creatures that is in your mind and its pose. Don’t limit your mind in combining different parts of a creature and not just the upper part of the body or the lower part but include also its small parts. Image

After the outline, skinned up the structures by just forming different shapes on it and then, flesh it up with muscles according to what you’ve imagine. Not only the muscular appearance or the physical form of any object, animal or human is being improved to create a new discovery but also its surroundings. Any detail that we can see on our drawing is use to classify it as a fantasy art. This includes the way how characters are being dressed-up with unfamiliar garments or devices and the setting or the background of the sketch as well. Image

In the end, the thing you need to do to finalize your master piece is applying what you’ve learned on shading. Through reading my previous articles, we found out that one way of unlocking your talents in drawing is by learning the most basic element of sketching: “shading”. Being done by giving depth and contrast on every object of your drawing means you are totally done with it, then you will be amazed by your own piece of art.

Humans use twenty percent of their brain and look what we’ve got, bunch of mystery figures, characters of untold stories and places no one has ever been before. We need not a hundred percent of intellect to produce ours, what we need is just a fraction of our creative thinking and imagination.
